Keep that umbrella handy, and be prepared for travel impacts from the weather today. More rain is on the way for your Black Friday forecast, and gusty South winds will continue through this afternoon. A Wind Advisory will stay in place through 4pm in the valley for winds up to 25mph, with gusts up to 40mph. The strong winds could uproot trees, and cause power outages and knock debris into roadways. The Flash Flood Watch will stay in place through this afternoon in areas immediately surrounding the burn scars from the past year. That means areas around the Camp, Carr, Delta, and Hirz fires will all have the potential for some flooding or debris flows until the rain settles down. There is also a Winter Storm Warning in place through Friday morning for snow in higher elevations, but most of that will turn to rain today. Temperatures have dipped into the high 40's to low 50's in the valley overnight, and into the 30's to 40's in the mountains. Rain will continue through the day today, but is not expected to be as heavy as last night. Winds will be up to 25mph out of the Southeast, with gusts up to 40mph today. High temperatures will only top out in the high 50's to low 60's in the valley, and in the 40's to 50's in the mountains. Showers will mostly wrap up tonight, but some mountain showers could linger into early Saturday.

Dry and a little warmer for your weekend. Temperatures will dip into the high 30's to low 40's in the valley for the mornings, and climb into the low to mid 60's for the afternoons. Looks like we can expect those conditions to continue for the start of next week on Monday. Another wet weather system will arrive along the coast early Tuesday and spread showers through the region all day. More showers will be possible through Thursday of next week. Temperatures will become cooler as the next round of rain arrives. Most of the valley will be in the mid 50's from Tuesday through Thursday of next week.

A hot week will transform into an even hotter weekend over northern California as high pressure stays in control of our weather. No rain is in the forecast, but it will cool a bit by late next week.
